Tomorrow I finally close on my condo and move! HUZZAH! It’s felt like such a long time coming! A stray cat showed up at a coworker’s house about a week ago and because her cat is a “one-cat household” sort of cat, she asked me if I “needed a cat” and I was like, “Yes, but I still don’t have my house yet!” I told her I would in about a week to two weeks and she said she couldn’t wait that long and was going to take it to the shelter, but then she discovered that it came from a very abusive household on her street, so she decided to foster it in her backyard until I’d have my home, and then I’m going to rescue it. It’s a completely black shorthair, presumed female (could possibly be a neutered male?) with green eyes. My coworker says they are extremely cuddly/affectionate and putting on weight well, but does have the stray cat issue of overeating to the point of vomiting. I can’t wait until I can have a comfort animal again!
So this was the other free tea I got from the Tao of Tea booth at Tea Fes PDX. It was a green tea blend, and since I didn’t take a picture of the booth I have no idea what was in the sachets, as it wasn’t one of their sold blends. I’ve just been soaking the sachets as iced tea while my tea collection has been boxed up. I assumed it was probably a Moroccan Mint sort of thing, but it didn’t smell minty, and I thought that might have been because the green tea bags were in the same freebie bag as their hibihip tea bags, which had a much stronger aroma. But this doesn’t taste minty at all. It tastes much more citrusy, and there is something very green, quenching, and refreshing tasting… and I’ve only tasted that particular taste once, when I tried a moringa blend. Could this have moringa in it? Seems a rather strange ingredient to include in freebie teabags, so I doubt it, but the flavor does remind me of it! So a bit like fresh pond water, a vegetative, earthy/plantlike quality, and a bit of citrus, perhaps a bit of herby lemongrass and a little of the punchiness of tangerine. Nicely quenching.
I feel like I still have so much that needs thrown into boxes here at the 11th hour that I’ve had out as living necessities for the last two months, but just no energy with the constant migraines to deal with it. Meh.
